the start of the obama administration, the two parties have been at war about the wisdom, legality and practicality of the affordable care act. what's next when it comes to healthcare? maria hinojosa of need to know has that. >> it's been two and a half years since congress passed the president's controversial affordable care act and four months since the supreme court upheld the heart of the legislation. but most of the bill, which eventually might insure another 30 million people, actually doesn't go into effect until 2014. whether it ever does will depend on what happens next tuesday and not just in the presidential race. >> what the court did not do on it's last day in session, i will do on my first day if elected president of the united states and that is i will act to repeal obamacare. >> mitt romney has said again and again he will get rid of obamacare as soon as he takes office. whether he can might be another story. >> it'd be pretty difficult for him to actually repeal the healthcare law within 24 hours. he would need to go to congress and we'd still have to wait and see
. it is enormous. the reality is the regulations that the obama administration is proposing would not allow that plan to be built under those regulations. you say, do not fight those. do you know what that will mean? higher electricity and fuel costs, and fool -- and food costs. the people in washington would be proposing this tax that would hurt lower-income people the most. other countries, china, india, russia, brazil, none of them would propose that on their own citizens. it is the kind of approach that american enterprise systems not have to have on them, nor working families. >> thank you. i apologize for skipping your rebuttal the next question goes to tim kaine. you have mentioned that already. you noted president obama us plan calls for them to -- obama's plan. are you saying you would not, under any circumstance, vote for an obama budget or an obama bill that came to the senate that says we will cut the bush tax cuts and let them expire? >> i think my proposal is the right proposal. i will not vote for of bills that i know have a no chance of passing the house. you saw what happen
problem here is that the obama administration, like the bush administration before it could work uses to acknowledge clearly iran's right to enrich uranium on its own soil. even if the obama administration and the rumors they are thinking of doing this after they are like good horse to offer iran a bigger carrot as if the iranians were donkeys, and a final shot at diplomacy, there is no indication that the obama administration is willing to clearly recognize iran's right to enrich uranium on its own soil. and therefore there won't be a deal. even if there is no deal and iran doesn't collapse, some policy elite continue to posit the sanctions and their version of diplomacy is all worth it. it's worth it in the end because iranians, middle eastern public will come to see that iran's suffering an inability to get a deal on the nuclear issue is the iranian government's fault. and therefore would be understandable and even justified for the united states in the end to strike iran militarily. we should have no illusions about the strategic consequences of an overworked with the islamic repu
the obama -- i mean, from the bush to the obama administration in the transition. the presidential candidates, even the nominee's authority do not get really president-elect bush called the stuff in terms of regimes. the two candidates i assume governor romney is getting these now. the nominees of the party are offering intelligence briefings by career people, but the analytical or what we used to call briefings, which is one of the many euphemisms from cia's panchayat to purge from my memory because i can't get it out of my head. but their analytical. they are not operational. they're not given a lot of specific details about agents and agent operation that only happens once the election takes place. once it is in the case of the new president, obviously a president obama is reelected, this will not happen. but that is when they get the review above the ongoing covert programs. that is some president-elect obama first had a detailed briefing on the enhanced interrogation program. by that time, much of it, or suppose "the new york times" probably had 85% of it. but that wasn't the
. with representatives from the administrations of george h. w. bush through the current administration of barack obama, our guest speakers today offer their expertise and experience as a look back on the use of service and look forward to the future of u.s.-asia relations. wish to offer my gratitude to georgetown's asian studies program, our school of foreign service, and the korea economic institute who have partnered to bring together some of our countries most respected minds on foreign policy and asia. we are deeply grateful to doctor victor cha a professor in government and asian studies and director of asian studies here in georgetown. carol lancaster, our dean of the school of foreign service, and doctor abraham kim, the interim president of the korea economic institute, for making this event possible. were also aren't up with is representative of the department of education, and we thank the department for its recognition of our asian studies program title vi, national resources center for east asia. it's fitting we gather today for this conversation just days before the presidential election.
to address the panel. you know have six prosecutions in the obama administration after three prior to -- after three prior prosecutions. you now have a press that is not just the new york times, not just the "washington post," but wikileaks, individuals no longer needing the mainstream media to put documents, formerly classified documents into the public environment. so it is a changing landscape on both sides. different kind of media and i think a different attitude in government, at least that is what appears to us. the rise and concerns about terrorism and then the concern for government secrecy, and the ability to transfer large amounts of data electronically. you know, if you think back to the pentagon papers, daniel ellsworth has to come to the new york times or a paper like the new york times to get the secret's out, and that was the only way to make them public, not so now. when the government wanted to do terrible things, they actually had to send people to break into his psychiatrist office. no longer necessary. they now have other tools for doing those kinds of things. i
. >> were going to move onto a topic, a foreign policy question. congresswoman, you come to obama administration of course we seem has been criticized for its handling of the deadly attack on u.s. consulate in libya. this attack resulted in the death of ambassador chris stevens but we also now know that he made multiple attempts to get more security and that these efforts went unheeded. do you believe that the obama administration mishandled the situation even after and also in the aftermath of the attack? what could have been done better and should be done better going forward? hochul: absolutely mishandled, and to learn how that their cries for help from people asking for additional support, and to know they were unanswered is unacceptable. estimate of the house armed service committee when we get back to washington will conduct oversight hearings and make sure that our ambassadors and all the consulate personnel across this globe are protected. we've got to make sure they have within me. i would not do as republican leadership in congress, cut $300 million from embassy security
and the obama administration. the next president will reap the rewards of work already done. so it would be the ultimate irony if having strongly criticized every measure that contributed to these positive trends mitt romney ends up presiding over what she would surely call the romney recovery. for more on this, go to cnn/fareed for a link to my "washington post" column. and let's get started. >>> let's get straight to our terrific panel to talk about the economy and obviously a little politics, as well. joe klein is "time's" political economist. amity shlaes is director for the 4% project at the george w. bush institute and author of the forthcoming "coolidge: a biography of america's 30th president." ken rogoff, whom i mentioned, is a professor of economics at harvard university, and amity shlaes is the author of thompson reuters digital and author of "politocrats." become back to both of you. ken, the piece i mentioned, you and carmen rhine hahart wrote almost a political piece about how the u.s. was doing. you said, look, compared with other big financial crises that meet the recessi
options. unfortunately the obama administration has chosen to wait. if we wait too long they may get the weapon in the near future. melissa: thanks for coming on the show. we appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. melissa: next on "money", the bells on wall street ring once again. but now big holes are exposed showing how unprepared they are for disaster. at the end of the day it is always about money. ♪ ♪ . melissa: new york stock exchange opened today for the first time sips the storm but wasn't exactly smooth sailing. overall, it gave wall street a better look at what is wrong with their emergency plan, what needs to be fixed for future disasters. here is more is the founder and president of imperial wealth management. let me ask you, do you think this shutdown did further more diminish the retail investors faith in the market? >> i think it could have but i think the fact it opened this morning with smooth sailing and pretty much all the trades were executed, kind of gave faith to the retail investor that we were prepared to some degree, although it wasn't without any gli
this happening. i was very significant about the obama administration was once it happened they didn't sort of look around and say what should we do? they didn't kind of pulled back. the kind of const on it. i think it is one thing whoever is running foreign policy in a month or two months time, with the good or bad happens get moving on it. and i think the obama administration really moved on this issue in burma and i think i felt the process go forward. so it's not just surprises. it's how you react to a 60 obama administration did a great job on burma. >> for the first time in my life, i think i'll probably just listen and observe. my staff is gone i cannot believe it. chris is right and these are good people and you hate to put them through having to work for people like ice, but still. i will say talk about strategic surprises. i never in a million years thought i would come home to my daughter's all doing this cowboy south korean tribe around my living room, singing a korean song called style. i didn't think i would have been. >> were going to go to the next part, which are questions.
for the obama administration is married women. they are less dependent on the government, and less likely to buy the president's argument. so they're the group want obama campaign is really worried about. when i talk to the married women, on the one hand they say they think romney can handle the economy and they're worried about the republicans being too extreme and go back and forth. the romney campaign is trying to get them to drop this and think about this at the last minute. there are a small number of undecided voters -- and the question of trust. he was saying trust is a matter central to the presidency, measure important than anything else, and trying to tie that to this notion of romney changing his positions. that was also a pitch to women. romney's pitch, bipartisanship. >> schieffer: let me bring up this, a spent friday, spent a good part of the day with stu rothen bargain, and charlie cook, and i would these are the most respected analysts going today. both told me separately they could not remember a time this deep into the campaign when they said they had no idea how this was going
% enrichment activities. but the key problem here is that the obama administration, like the bush administration before it, refuses to acknowledge clearly iran's right to enrich uranium on its own soil. even if the obama administration, and there are rumors they are think of doing this after they're elected, were to offer iran a bigger carrot, as if the iranians were donkeys, and a final shot at diplomacy, there is no indication that the obama administration is willing to clearly recognize iran's right to enriched uranium on its own soil. and, therefore, there won't be a deal. even if there's no deal and iran doesn't collapse, some policy elites continue to posit that sanctions and their version of diplomacy is all worth it. it is worth any and because iranians, middle eastern publics, and americans most importantly will come to see that iran's is suffering and inability to get a deal on the nuclear issue is the iranian government's fault. and, therefore, it will be understandable, and even justified for the united states in the end to strike iran militarily. but we should have no
for the kingman. >> it's about foreign policy. the obama: administration now says terrorists were behind the murder of u.s. ambassador in libya, christopher stevens, should the u.s. have known more about what was going on in libarch better security for our people? what more do you think needs to be done to fight terrorism? >> look, karen, i have taken a classified brief so i cannot go into extensive details here but it's already apparent that we made mistakes. the president has come forward and taken responsibility for that. clearly more should have been done. what's important right now is we mourn the losses of the families, that we learn what happened. that we don't rush to judgment. we figure out -- we certainly will find the perpetrators and there will be justice for those that did this. then it's important that we learn from these experiences. i will tell you that i post military operations in libya last year. and i say that after very careful consideration and thought. i spent a lifetime in national security. i also think we need to think and act differently. absolutely we need the
and suddenly this happened. what is very significant about the obama administration was at once it happened, they did not necessarily look around and say, what should we do? they did not hold back. the kind of pounced on it. whoever is running foreign policy amongst their time, when something good or bad happens, get moving on it. i think the obama administration really moved on this issue in burma. i think this has helped the process go forward. it is not just surprises, but how you react to them. i think obama did a great job on burma. >> for the first time in my life, i think i will listen and observe. [laughter] my staff is going, i cannot believe it. i hate having to put them through working for people like us. i will say this about strategic surprises -- i never in a million years thought that i would come home to my daughters doing this cowboy thing dance around the living room singing "gangnam style." [laughter] >> i do not know if we will be able to take everybody's questions. if you can state who you are and possibly address your question to one of our panelists. please make your
, i question for jared. why did the obama administration it do more -- why did not the obama administration do more for poor communities given his work as a community organizer? some insight from your white house position. >> if you looked, and going to quote one of my colleagues, you can go on the web site of our institution, cbp.org you will find a number of papers but look at the impact on poverty of the stimulus, the recovery act. the recovery act lifted millions of people out of poverty. expanded the earned income tax credit. if you are not working, it did not help you. but a lot of people kept their jobs. the child tax credit was made refundable down to lower income levels. lifted a lot of people of poverty. the tax credit helped low-income workers, later the payroll tax credit helped. the expansion of unemployment insurance. critical. you heard, we will probably launch market poverty went up and 2011. on question only, if that is true, one of the reasons is because we pulled back some of the safety net in terms of extended unemployment insurance programs running out fo
the american public, would suggest there would be a big response from the obama administration. there is only so much to you in do. a storm like this in new york, that is something we have not seen for a long time. there is certainly the earth -- possibility for people to say, rightly or wrongly, that the federal government did not respond appropriately. i have not seen any signs that any major figure in the republican party is trying to do that. unlike when some people immediately decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the response posed to the staff in benghazi, libya. we will have to wait to see what the response is. host: final question for you -- how was this impacting the journalists that cover the campaign? caller: one thing that we are expecting an impact on, e-mail and electricity service in the washington, d.c. area. there are contingency plans for that kind of emergency. i am not the person in charge of that. we're going to continue to
. that assessment taken over by foreign workers. this is a big issue that it will affect your boat? >> the obama administration has been somewhat concerned with the screening. in terms of coming out and saying we're going to be serious about putting american citizens first and line both candidates have not said so. we're concerned that romney is off for stapling and automatic green card to every foreign students. we are hearty graduating more than enough grads in the disciplines. according to one study, there are 101,000 u.s.-born individuals within engineering degree who are unemployed. they're not even in the labor market. they have a job in engineering degree. >> i will leave it there. >> thank you for taking my call. i would like to comment on a few quick issues. the romney ticket wanted to let the automobile industry go down. now they try to backpedal and say all types of things. they tried to indicate that they did not feel that way. they barely clearly did. i do not think the american public should allow them to backpedal. it is very clear that ryan and romney want to turn medicare into a
another continuing resolution used to fund the governments, the obama administration had not passed a budget was coming up. the republicans, the republican leaders believe it was an easy vote, and their own members voted against it. and the appropriations committee , which designs these continuing resolutions and all other spending bills was serious and they insisted on meeting with the. they said, you need to punish these members. we are the ones being punished. were doing everything you want us to do, cutting spending, and these guys still one vote for it. any to fall in line. and he said family can't do that anymore. it will make mars of the. >> so they don't feel like they're in a position to lead on matters of the debt ceiling or anything else. >> in fact, i think it is interesting. this fall but has been devoted to a the debt ceiling. specifically, you know, long magazine stories to the so-called grand bargain between the speaker and obama that fell apart. from my standpoint all of that is when and sales, with all due respect to the authors of those stories and books because t
. obama did describe the events as an act of terror twice. some officials of the obama administration suggested that the united states had no indication that it was a planned assault. did you have any response to that? guest: i would point out that, several times the obama situation pointed to it being a protest that got out of hand. i do believe that the white house was not straight forward with the american people from the beginning. host: florida, on our independent line. caller: question to the chair person -- and why did the candidates go into the michigan or ohio area and to make a statement about relocating to china? and never retracted the statement or put out anything from his committee. every time he makes a misstatement, he never comes back and tries to correct it to explain the coup methodology behind that? guest: biden not get that question. -- i did not get that question. host: he had concerns he was raising about the truth telling of that. guest: i think it is clear that the president has not been a firm with china. we have copyrights and trademarks being piloted with c
% of the time tester supported the job killing policy of the obama administration. if we want to get people wack to do we can't do things like pass obamacare. it stifles the economy, costs job and ultimately doesn't reform health care as it's intented to do. supporting regulation like the -- that does in fact cost 35 jobs. it's going to take billions of collars out of the economy. and the stimulus, it adds up to a trillion dollars to the debt. it was a failed stimulus. it didn't work. we need to -- liberating main street and believing that is the past path for supporting government or more government control. >> moderator: senator tester, your response. tester: i want to thank you. i want to introduce my family. my one daughter, and kristy and james and my other daughter and 60% of the grandkids are here. it is good have james here, he was hunting and there was doubt whether he was going to show up for the debate. look, jobs are absolutely critically important. if you take a look what's wrong with washington, d.c., folks don't work together. people are partisan, terrorist -- there's a long list
-- that did start at the end of the bush administration. for years past the start of the obama administration, we have addressed concerns. the economy has not improved to the degree >> this is horrible to give to our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. we cannot continue on with these tax policies. >> one more call from you. >> good morning. i wanted to make a verification from a caller from earlier about the interpretation that republicans are against unions. it is not being clear and enough to our voters that there is a difference between a private-sector union in a government tax-funded union. in the private sector, the union leaders and the workers negotiate. in the government-funded unions, the union leaders take the news -- dues from the workers, support elected officials that they are interested in getting into office. the union leaders negotiated with those elected officials that are then paid for with funded tax dollars. that is why jfk was against the government tax-funded unions. i do not feel there -- there is a huge difference. people do not understand this. >> mr.
and barack obama's come around to the bush administration's policy on aggression overseas but don't worry, people. >> the foreign policy debate of the three debates i assume this will be the least watched of the three. >> so many voters in recent polls have said they don't care anything about foreign policy. >> yes or no, this debate matter? >> i don't think so. (laughter) >> jon: we'll be right back. (cheers and applause) (cheers and applause). >> jon: with the third debate out of the way campaign now enters its final phase so we turn to john oliver and aasif mandvi, they've been following the two campaigns. time for the end game. gentlemen, how are you? (cheers and applause) you two have been on the bus with both campaigns. these campaigns are finally making their closing statements of this election. john oliver, let's start with you. what is obama campaign's closing speech and pitch to the american people? >> simply this, john. the obama camp feels the choice is simple. maybe obama hasn't been the president you wanted him to be. perhaps he didn't meet the high expectations he set himse
comments even from the obama administration, shifting from the manichaean view towards assad. so all of these scenarios don't present too much of a pretty picture, and, obviously, lead to more death and destruction in the near term but, unfortunately, there are no easy answers to this. thank you very much. [applause] >> thank you. we have two respondents. we have paul sullivan, professor of economics, national defense university as was agenda professor in the security studies program at georgetown university. will ask and become first and then lastly we'll have ambassador take the tooth, president and ceo of america-mideast education and training. spent i have not been more torn of the situation were longtime that the situation in syria. this is a serious business. now, when people mentioned soft power, i think there may be some of get the impression that this is having peace on lake geneva, an
from the obama administration and the pentagon which emphasize the need for smaller, more agile force. just about to get under way. live here on c-span. >> years ago the pentagon -- the auditorium had a podium that required a microphone. this user command equipment is really difficult. welcome to the center for strategic and international studies. that sounds real. all right. good morning, welcome to everyone in the room. welcome to our viewers on the web this morning. i'm david berteau, director of the international security program here and the host for this morning's military strategy forum. we have been doing these forum for about a dozen years now almost, and it's due in great part to the generous support of rolls royce north america, we thank you for that support. without which we couldn't do this program. it's a pleasure for us to have with us this morning, the chief of staff of the united states army, general ray odierno. general odierno is from new jersey. anybody who is from new jersey these days has been a little bit distracted. new jersey took the brunt of the storm. i gre
with representatives from the administration of george h.w. bush to the current administration of barack obama, our guest speakers today offered their expertise and experience as they look back on their years of service and look forward to the future of u.s.-asia relations. we offer my gratitude to georgetown's asian studies program, our school foreign service and the korea economic institute who have partnered to bring together some of our country's most respected minds on foreign policy and asia. we are deeply grateful to dr. dr. victor cha and director of asian studies here at georgetown. dean carol lancaster dean of the foreign service and dr. abraham kim, the interim president of the korea economic institute her make in this event possible. we are also unsure what this representative of education and we think the department for its recognition of version studies program as title vi national resource center for east asia. it is fitting that we gather today for this conversation just days before the presidential election. the topic of our discussion will take on increasing importance for our pre
. it was president obama and his administration has been nearly two weeks blaming what happened on a video, threatening to arrest the filmmaker. there will be discussions on that for how the president handled that. back to jobs, mitt romney has a very clear record of success. host: republican calller. caller: i think he may take the state of new hampshire, but i hope he wins, because we need to get lisp's scam artists out of the white house once and for all. i am sick and tired of al sharpton promoting this guy. they're both scam artists. guest: having been born in new hampshire, i grew up in pennsylvania. with regard to the president, i think it is very clear the stakes are extraordinarily high in this race. we cannot afford four more years of president obama. we cannot afford four more years of trillion dollar deficits. we cannot afford a growing debt that has gone to 16 trillion on his watch and will go to 20 trillion if we get four more years of him. we cannot afford four more years of obama care and big government takeover spirited mare romney has made it very clear what his plans are
foreign policy. the obama administration said terrorists were behind the murder of christopher stephens. should the u.s. have known more about what was going on and libya, have better security for people? what more needs to be done to fight terrorism? gibson: i've taken a classified resort cannot go into details here. it's arty apparent that we made mistakes. the president has come forward and taken responsibility for that. clearly more should've been done done. what port right now is the people of the losses of the families, that we learn what happened, that we don't rush to judgment. we certainly will find the perpetrators and there will be justice for those who did this. but then it's important we learn from these experiences. i will tell you that i oppose military operations in libya last year and i say that after very careful consideration and thought. i spent a lifetime and national security, but he also gained weight tank and act differently. absolutely winning the world's strongest military to protect this would be a deterrent, to protect her terrorist way of life. we should be
to the obama administration, it makes their top five, but the top five for most people, three out of those spots are the economy, the economy, the economy. after that is energy and if you look for democrats, social issues. health care being among them. host: thanks for your time. >> a look at efforts of the romney campaign to win in colorado. president obama has been to this state, he carried by a large number. how are republicans responding? >> i think since mid-september, particularly since the first debate, republicans are very energized right now. i think getting out and responding, you're seeing record visits by the republican candidate, mitt romney as well as his running mate, paul ryan. >> describe the ground game for republicans and what you need to have in place in order to win the seat of colorado? >> the ground game typically used are building your ground game about six months out from the election. clearly our candidate mitt romney was still engaged in our primary fight. what you need to have in place are thousands of volunteers dispersed amongst the i-25 corridor, and some com
administration to seek negotiations with iran in the second term and president bush and president obama have had a very, policies very close to each other. we, both administrations wanted to deny iran a nuclear weapon. both have been willing to negotiate with iran but iran hasn't been open to that. both administrations sanction iran and threatened the use of military force should that be necessary. i think that is the proper policy. so i think there is large-scale agreement in washington that that should be the construct. if president ama is reelected or if governor romney wins the eltion, i would think it does make sense for us to have negotiations with iran. we certainly have the time and space available to do that. negotiations don't mean at all that you give away the store. negotiations mean that you try to stop them from building a nuclear weapon but try to do it by peaceful diplomatic means with a threat of force behin you. if negotiations don't succeed you always have that option of force. melissa: yeah. >> so i think it does make sense we would try to negotiate. melissa: if they pomise t
-dollar website. one day i went there and saw how much money i spent -- how much money the obama administration spent. it's a $531 million. that stimulus bill didn't work at all. that was a complete failure and waste of money that we are still paying interest on. >> moderator: we call the time. our next question. >> moderator: if nothing happens, this congressional district is scheduled to have a large number of post offices close. what would you propose to do with to deal with the debt of the post offices? gill: i think a large part of the debt relating to the postal service is due to the fact that career politicians in washington dc set up a scheme by which the postal service had to fund 75 years into the future with respect to retirement and future pension costs in health care costs. i think it would go a long way towards restoring solvency and it being endorsed by numerous workers. but look towards dinner for them when i get washington dc. davis: when one runs for congress the better part of the decade, what has to happen when we talk about overall spending in washington? we have to ensure
just heard from fema administrator craig fugate giving the latest on recovery efforts in the wake of hurricane sandy. president obama did visit fema earlier today before taking to the campaign trail. turning back to the tough election races and senate and house districts across the country, the senate race in massachusetts teachers senator scott brown, a republican, is in challenger elizabeth warren, a democrat. in the 2010, scott brown won a set -- one a special election for the seat, long held by ted kennedy. this debate comes to us courtesy of wshm tv and was held in springfield on october 10. a final debate was scheduled for october 30 but was canceled because of hurricane sandy. >> good evening. welcome to symphony hall for a debate between scott brown and elizabeth warren. i am honored to be the moderator tonight. we have rules this evening. our audience of more than 2600 guests have agreed to be silent. no interruptions or applause. each candidate has a minute and 30 seconds to answer each question, and 30 seconds for rebuttal. later, each candidate gets one minute for a cl
